Auburn has achieved Regional recognition from its part in the Wreaths Across America at Fort Mitchell National Cemetery. There, our members helped honor our Veterans and fallen heroes by laying wreaths on the headstones this past December. Auburn has also received National recognition from its pioneering event, the CAP Iron Man Competition, in 2006. This competition was created to bring the members of the Alabama Wing together in a fun, yet challenging competition. Colonel Russell Hodgkins, then CAP-USAF Commander, assisted in handing out the trophies. The Competition did so well, that during a recent Wing Inspection, our Squadron was awarded the Benchmark Award, and has been looked at for possible expansion regionally and nationally.
The Auburn Composite Squadron maintains an 85-90% attendance record for Wing activities, and is proud to send its Cadets and Senior Members to other Regional and National activities. In 2010, our squadron was honored with the Dion DeCamp Ground Team of the Year award for the entire Civil Air Patrol organization. We have also had members win Wing and Regional awards for their “above and beyond” participation and activities.
The Squadron meets every Tuesday night, from 6:30-8:30 pm, in the Auburn University Regional Airport (2150 Mike Hubbard Boulevard, Auburn, AL 36830). Please contact the Commander via email to arrange a time to visit. You may also visit the National webpage for CAP to learn more about our program in general.
Thanks for visiting our website, and we hope to see you soon.
